They had everything they needed.

The only thing he knew about Men's Town

were the chapbooks

Seven Ears brought from there.

Men's Town was the closest village around,

over a moon and a half away.

His dream was

to get to know that place one day.

When Seven Ears would go to Men's town,

he'd make a doll of Seven Ears,

to make sure he was coming back.

Seven Ears said that if the doll was fine,

he'd be fine too.

As time went by, he grew up,

and Seven Ears never came back again.

Every now and then he'd think

about going after Seven Ears,

but he would get scared

whenever he thought about the last time

he tried to cross the badlands.

Eventually, he built up the courage

and decided he wouldn't come back

without Seven Ears.

He knew all types of animal dens

in the badlands,

but he had never seen

where man hid himself.

He knew those little colorful stones,

and he knew Seven Ears liked them.

Are you trying to get killed,

son of a gun?

When someone's up to no good,

you can see in their eyes.

It's the same for every animal.

It was the first time he killed a man.

He started out very well.

Slash, Dry-mouth,

and the Peruvian.

They were the three most wanted hitmen

in Pernambuco.

He wandered the rest of the night

trying to find Seven Ears.


As a reward for killing those men,

he got three Paraba tourmalines.

He had a hard time understanding

how such a little pebble

was worth more than someone's life.

It wouldn't quench his thirst,

neither did it feed him,

nor it brought dead men alive.

Why did people love those pebbles so much?

He would watch from afar

people going through their activities.

It was like watching the badlands animals.

Each one was different.

He saw that the villagers also had a doll,

and they'd gather around him
